I had the pleasure of appearing before Judge Siegel for the first time. I was impressed by her demeanor, intellect and overall persona. It was nice to be reminded that Judges like her still exist.

This is one of the poorest, most misinformed judges on the bench. She will attempt to intimidate whichever side she deems should lose, rather than provide a fair hearing for the litigants. Too bad for everyone that she's on the bench.
